Seeking the Sacred: Living a Spiritual Life in a Secular World

Speaking from experience—where things can go wrong and wrongs can remain unrighted—the five modern thinkers in this collection offer ways to maintain a spiritual life outside of a strictly religious context. Based on the acknowledgement that religious doctrine and academic paradigm do not always have adequate answers for the world’s complicated problems, the essays draw on a rich mosaic of beliefs, customs, and study to address issues from social justice and morality to consciousness and the place of faith. Noted thinker Thomas Moore explores the nature of the soul, while General Roméo Dallaire shares his trials of faith in the face of evil from his 1994 tour in Rwanda. Other ways for spirituality to inform daily life are also dealt with, from putting a wish for peace into action to reaching out to others in a time of need. As these writers name parts of everyday life as sacred and worthy of devotion, they help to lead readers who are seeking something greater in their lives down a mindful, spiritual path.
